Hi hoross,

 

Still buying Les Pauls? You must have quite a collection by now.

Is it a traditional T or is it a Traditional HP?

 

Did you check out the models here at Gibson.com ?

 

If the LTD edition is not shown above. The shop you ordered from can give you the specs.

Hi Hoross and congrats. I believe that is a Sweetwater exclusive and it does appear that they are the same specs except for the plain top, and I think they are non weight-relieved as well. I think they look great! Did you go with the cherry burst or the light burst?

JFLETCHER i went down with the cherry sunburst cause the Tobacco sunburst and light burst wll be out a bit later i prefer the light burst but hey needed to wait another month or so but i never had a cherry sunburst in my life so i guess

 

must be cool.

 

At first i wanted to get the lemon burst but i hate the lemon burst color so i went for the plaintop traditional i think i will get the guitar this week or next week cant wait :)

I inadvertently played one the other day. Went to a new (to me) shop to try some pedals, and asked for something close to my current LP ('57 pickups, basically). They gave me a HC Traditional plaintop as the test driver guitar. I didn't notice until I laid it back-down on my lap towards the end, as I was adjusting the controls on the pedals at my feet. I noticed there was no flame on that top, but it said "Traditional" up top. I checked the label and there it said limited edition plaintop, for thirteen-hundred and something quid.

 

It was a lovely guitar to play; great neck and weight; pickups nice as always; and the plain top under the normal bursts makes it look like an R8. If you're not bothered about a figured top and are happy with a Traditional setup; get one of those!
